Errors trying to enable conduits to gnomecal and gnomecard


When I try to enable the conduits for the Gnome Calendar and Card
applications (from the Gnome Control Center), I get the following error
message: "Cannot instantiate conduit."  An examination of my
~/.xsession-errors file yields the following:

libgpilotdcm-WARNING **: unable to g_module_open
(/usr/lib/gnome-pilot/conduits/, reason
/usr/lib/gnome-pilot/conduits/ undefined symbol:

Okay, I said, fine, so maybe the Mandrake RPMs I installed (gnome-pim
and gnome-pim-conduits, both RPMs version 1.4.0-4mdk) were somehow bad. 
I tried downloading the SRPM gnome-pim-1.4.0-4mdk.src.rpm (which
produces both binary RPMs) and rebuilding, but this rebuild crashes with
the following:

This seems to pretty much be the problem with the conduits I am trying
to instantiate.  My question is this: how did anyone else ever build the
binary RPM from an SRPM that had these problems?  Could my gcc install
be bad?  I have gcc-2.96-0.61mdk, which I heard was really an alpha
version of gcc-3.0, but if I try to backtrack to gcc-2.95.x or uninstall
gcc completely (and use egcs instead), rpm complains about all kinds of
dependencies being broken.

Anyone know a way out of this mess?
